visualisation, it can make and play selections based on the locations
of automatically detected features, seamlessly loop playback of single

playback, slow down playback while retaining display synchronisation,
and show the ongoing alignment in time between multiple recordings of
a piece with different timings. Sonic Visualiser also supports the
Vamp plugin API for plugins that extract descriptive or analytical
data from audio.
